journal" steven moore joins us now. he had an exclusive report. you sat down with boehner hours after the deal, right? >> i did. over in the capitol outside of the house chamber. the bomb he dropped that's been getting so much attention was that the president told the speaker hold on to your seat there. the president said, we don't have a spending problem. john boehner's jaw sort of dropped and my jaw dropped when the speaker told me that story. the speaker said that he kept telling the president during those five weeks of negotiations, steve, we do have a spending problem, mr. president! and then the president said to him, mr. speaker, i'm getting tired of you telling me that. but look, to say we don't have a spending problem would be like the greek president saying we don't have a debt problem. the first stage of recovery, steve f an addiction is to at least acknowledge that you got a problem. and maybe that's why these negotiations broke down, because the speaker told me not once during all of those five weeks was the president ever really very serious about cutting spending. >> st

security. concealed carry for me, but not for thee and everyone from michael moore to my twitter pal russell simmons who is denying that he had bodyguards, but has had them over a long time. ex-wife and daughters benefit from it and any number of these big moguls in hollywood who benefit from that and are now spreading this antigun propaganda so that the rest of innocent law abiding gun owners are not only marginalized, but demonized for exercising those same rights to protect themselves and their families. >> alisyn: and we showed a picture there of two of the editors or owners of -- this is the journal news there in new york, they also -- that's the newspaper who decided to publish a map, an interactive map of the gun owners in their neighborhood, two counties. and now we've heard from politico that they're going to have armed guards at their offices. so they begrudge people personally from want to go protect their homes, yet they can have armed guards at their offices because of the e-mails they've gotten. >> yes, that's right. and let me be clear, that i oppose any kind of death
